And from the looks on these floppy faces, it seems to have been one of the most exciting days of their lives. Well, all except for the corgi — he doesn't find your silly outer space very impressive.

3D-printing firm MakerBot opened its new — and much larger — factory in Brooklyn, N.Y., on Friday.
The 50,000-square-foot building is located in the borough's Sunset Park neighborhood. Its main purpose is to accommodate the company's growing staff — they plan to increase by more than 50 over the summer — and extend production on a product for which demand is rapidly growing.
"We were 120 employees at the start of the year. Now we're at 267," Bre Pettis, MakerBot's CEO, told Mashable. "The game is on.

It's the next industrial revolution." Read more...

An erupting Alaskan volcano shot ash plumes so high into the air that astronauts on board the International Space Station were able to capture the activity in crisp, detailed photographs
Pavlof Volcano — located in the Aleutian Arc about 625 miles southwest of Anchorage — erupted on May 13, spewing lava and generating an ash cloud that reached 22,000 feet high. Pavlof is one of the most active volcanos in the United States, with nearly 40 known eruptions
While the majority of the plumes were released over the weekend, U.S. Geological Survey scientists told the Associated Press Thursday that the volcano is still rumbling, and seismic instruments continue to register tremors. Flights in the area have also been cancelled Read more...
